Michelle Obama

Oprah's Neighbors Pissed

Over FLOTUS' Hawaii Vacation

Michelle Obama
's visit to Oprah's Hawaii compound has crippled the neighborhood around O's home ... and some neighbors are pissed.

Some of the residents and business people around Oprah's palatial 12-bedroom Maui estate -- where Michelle recently retreated to spend the last few days of her 40s --  are all telling the same story ... Michelle's visit is making day-to-day life almost impossible.

The owner of nearby Goble's Flower Farm tells us ... security checkpoints have been set up on the roads ... blocking customers from shopping there.

Other business owners complain they can't stock their shelves because road closures have screwed up their deliveries.

A worker at Grandma's Maui Coffee tells us, employees are arriving VERY late to work. 

And fun is also affected.  Recreational areas (like hiking trails) have also been shut down.

Not good for Oprah's relations with her neighbors, which have already been strained from her generally imposing presence.  But it's nothing that a good cocktail party can't solve.

Awww, poor rich peoples' problems. Wah, wah, wah. Suck it up, rich people! It's only for a week or 2. You'll live through the terrible, awful, abominable experience and have stories to bitch about - I mean, to 'share'- with friends and family in the future.

Maui residents should shut up and be thankful that they get to walk in the shadow of royalty even if it's only for a few days.

Blatant racism wrapped in criticism. I do not recall hearing complaints from previous first lady visits around other parts of the country. Please have some respect for your president and his wife.

Why does the FLOTUS not return to the WH with the POTUS? The taxpayers get to foot the bill for an empty
plane from DC to Hawaii, so the FLOTUS will be SAFE from
"WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE, WHY HAVE FOUR DEAD American!" Hillary Clinton SoS

Does ANYONE think that FLOTUS really CARES that others have been affected negatively because of her visit to Oprah! She is one big phony and I wouldn't trust her from HERE to THERE! That face of hers are Mandela's service speaks VOLUMES! SHE rules that roost! Can't wait to see what is going to happen once they are out of the White House!
